Beat the April Showers | Top 5 Umbrellas for Gents Gent on the street 11 April, 2015 While we enjoy the warmest days of the year so far, living in the UK means that rain is never far away. Whilst we are not wishing the rain back any time soon, its important that when it does pour down, a Gent can defend himself in style. Accordingly, we’ve listed our top 5 umbrella picks. Sherlock Umbrella by London Undercover Featuring a Sherlock Holmes monogram patterned interior with a traditional beach wood shaft and natural bamboo handle, this is another gem of an umbrella from London Undercover. Hattersley Holly by Mr Stanford If you’re looking for a variation to the block coloured umbrella, the Hattersley Holly is a good choice, merging colour and gentlemanly class. Magnum-1 Auto by Fulton Simple and effective with a classic style. This compact umbrella with a genuine wood handle and automatic opening, is sturdy and commuter friendly. Alnwick by Clements & Church Handmade in Italy from rigid mallaca wood, complemented by a leather handle, the Alnwick exudes gentlemanly sophistication. Jaguar Umbrella by Archer Adams With its 18th century gothic inspired jaguar head, this striking umbrella by Westminster based menswear designer Archer Adams will help you stand out.
